After the first three days of competition and 12 games played on the field of Settimo Milanese, the first verdicts of the fourth stage of the European Cricket Series have arrived. (This is a weekly concentration tournament, which after Rome, Bologna, Venice is now being played in Milan and next week in Brescia played in the T10 format. This is the most recent and explosive cricket format which includes only 60 throws per team and whoever scores the most points wins. In this way the matches last less than a football match. The winners of each concentration qualify for the Super Series which will be played in the autumn).
Total debacle for the Milanese teams, all eliminated in the first round. If this outcome could have been foreseen for the rookies of Pioltello and Milan, greater surprise has aroused the elimination of Milan United and even more so of Milan Kingsgrove, the team of national team captain Joy Perera. The two Bergamo teams are therefore advancing: Albano and Bergamo, Bogliasco, which benefited greatly from the addition of the blue Madupa Fernando and the Brianza team of Fresh Tropical, a team making its debut in federal tournaments but with many players of quality.
To these four teams will also be added Bergamo United, the winning team of the ECS of Spinaceto in 2020, which had therefore qualified by right to this second phase. The five teams will compete in an Italian group that will determine the first finalist and the two teams that will compete in the Eliminator to access the final.
The matches are broadcast live on the channels of the European Cricket Network, on the Facebook page of the Italian Cricket Federation and, exclusively for the Indian subcontinent, on the Fancode platform.
